Pours a lightly hazed gold with a tight white 2 finger cap that lasts well and laces. Moderate carbonation Aroma is woodsy-botanical with some robust bread dough malt tones and just a kiss of green apple. Soft mouth feel silky delivery. Up front the bready malts mingle with the woody-leafy hallertauer and spalter hops, lovely soft mineral palate, finishes in perfect balance between biscuity malts, earthy hops and soft mineral mouth from the water. A great summer patio lager...not really in the Czech style, ...more like a soft Bavarian pilsner made with old style hop varieties...excellent! I’m a lager head and I could drink oceans of this at a session.

A real interesting Idea and some people may really like this one. on the pour:Very light gold,small white head,the nose is malt yeast and a back ground of honey. on taste:Mild,clean and perhaps a little bland,the honey is really just nearly noticeable and makes for an unusual tasting pilsner.It is under-hopped,but only a little(hey they called it a pilsner,not a lager).the middle is slightly musty and then it drys out,no noticeable aftertaste. Body: it is thicker then your average pil due to the honey,and they did not hold back on the bubbles. I like it,kudo's to the brewer for trying something different.

Hoppy nose and pours a cloudy yellow with a short head. Medium hoppy palate with a slight bitter aftertaste. Itís a full flavored pilsner from a great brewery.

Druid (90) - Wamuran, AUSTRALIA - AUG 3, 2013
A nice looking golden coloured Pils with a light foamy head that persists. Good hoppy aromas and surprising levels of bitterness that leaves a slight metallic aftertaste. Overall a pretty good beer.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 18, 2006
Mild floral honey aroma with some light herbal hop character and lightly grainy malts apparent. Brilliantly clear golden blonde body is topped by a low, fine bubbled white head that lasts well. Toasty, biscuity malts are joined by a pleasant honey sweetness and mild citrus hop character leading through to a crisp finishing bitterness. Medium light body with moderate carbonation that is lightly effervescent, engaging the tongue. Tumbler. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle (BCLS Kingsgate, Sep-06).

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2007
Better than expected. Kinda weak, a little skunky, but other than that a smooth, very drinkable, tasty lager with a bit hop presence, spiciness in the end, and a faint but distinct honey flave.

mgermani (1000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 24, 2007
Pours a dull gold with a small head. Rich, immersive aroma of honey and clover. Slightly more aggressive hopping than other honey beers Iíve tasted, but still very sweet - strong, strong honey! Weak, thin body, decent carb. Not a bad beer, the honey is a good cover for what probably would have been a sweet beer anyway, though.

mullet2007 (209) - St. Johns, Newfoundland, CANADA - JUN 23, 2007
Pours a deep yellow to golden color, with next to no head which disappears almost immediately. Aroma has a tiny bit of honey, but is mainly some faint malt and a bit of hops. Initially it tastes mostly just like a pilsner, nicely bitter. Itís a little bit sweeter than average, and the aftertaste is of honey. Itís reasonably highly carbonated, and is a bit watery. Thanks Presario!

Boutip (4775) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 29, 2010
Can: Poured a bright yellow color pils with a medium size foamy head with some retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of lightly sweet malt notes with a dry finish. Taste is quite refreshing with nice notes of lightly sweet malt and dry finish with light crisp notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Well done though more Noble hops would have improve the recipee.
